Heavy compilation of hard to find Gospel 7″s.

R Henderson, the Whirlwinds, Ike Gordon, Bishop McDaniels & many more.  Comes with a bonus 7″ featuring the amazing Ethel Proffit on guitar & vocals performing “Death is not the end” & “Life is a battle”!  One of our best compilations ever & not for the faint of heart.

Absolutely beautiful performances by one of the greatest Indian classical vocalists of all time. A very limited edition with silkscreened covers.  If you’re not moved by this one, then I don’t know what’ll do it.

K Records
BEAKERS-Four Steps Toward A Cultural Evolution LP
$17.00
Beakers were a hack fit of four art-bashing funk wave arbiters who skronked into action Jan. 1980 and expired in Jan. 1981. In between they toured up and down the west coast, released a 45 and songs on two compilations, played shows with Delta 5 and Gang of Four, and recorded several times. The majority of the 17 songs on Four Steps Toward a Cultural Revolution (KLP163) have never been released before; the handful that were once available are now long out of print. The four Beakers, George Romansic, drums, Mark H. Smith, guitar and vocals, Jim Anderson, sax and vocals, and Frankie Sundsten, bass, were an abrupt, powerful force on the Seattle musical scene, who through the force of their personalities and charmingly abrasive music made that town quake, dance and smile.
